Politico Hatchet Job on Breitbart an Old Fashioned Pile-On

July 27, 2010 | Politics

By now every political junkie is aware of the fact that Andrew Breitbart is being hunted down like a rabid dog in a crowded neighborhood. The accusations against him are that he took a video “out of context,” thereby exaggerating racial statements made by Shirley Sherrod, USDA Georgia Director of Rural Development, and forcing her out of office. His most prominent accusers, Keach Hagey & Kenneth P. Vogel, write for the Politico where they posted an article titled: “The Tucker and Breitbart Show.” Read more…

DIXIE CHICKS FLASHBACK: Why Does Sheryl Crow Insult Country Music Fans?

July 1, 2010 | Politics

Many Country Music fans first real exposure to Sheryl Crow came with the release of “Picture,” a duet she sang with Kid Rock, in 2002. That was a strange pairing to say the least, because it put a self-proclaimed “Cowboy” who supported the then pending invasion of Iraq with an overt leftist who was anti-war and anti-Bush. But heartland America loved the song, thus Crow seemingly had an “in” with a crowd she probably lacked connections otherwise.

More recently, Crow purchased a home in Nashville, and has popped up at different events there, including last month’s Country Music Awards. To the curious onlooker, it appeared she was courting the Country Music audience, which is understandable because it’s a great group of people to have on your side.

But right in the middle of this apparent outreach to Country Music fans, Crow gave Katie Couric an interview for Glamour magazine, in which she lashed out at Tea Parties and other aspects of the Country Music crowd. As I read the interview, I could only imagine the Dixie Chicks’ former tour manager picking up a copy of Glamour and screaming – “Sheryl, didn’t you learn anything from Natalie Maines’ big mouth?!” Read more…
